Thousands of Miners Quit Work in Various Districts — Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois Affected. THE COLLIIKS QUIT. JOIUMBUS, 0., April 21.—The groat Btrilce of bituminous coal miners began at noon. It promises to be tlie greatest in tho history of the country. It will involve, if as great as anticipated, nearly ISO,000 men, and will stop work in mines that produced up- wurd of 100,000,000 tous of coal last year in twelve states and territories. Theso miners received $5'i,80 n ,0i7 in wages in 1890, according to the eleventh census of the United States. In that year 139,888 produced 70,809,108 tons of coal valued at tttO.SSO.CG'J. CUUBC ol the Strike. f The miners are striking for the res- toratlon of the inter-state wage agreement which was abandoned during the summer, first voluntarily by a small number of miners in the Pitlsburg district. »tid thus forced » reduction in every competitive district in the United States. Many operators in this district de- clnre that it is impossible to pay the wages asked by the minci-R, n.ud suy they are satisfied to permit the mines to remain idle. Rut this does not represent the sentiment of all the operators, many of whom acknowledge that the wages demanded could be paid if all would keep faith and not seek an advantage.

Reports at tho national headquarters of the miners' union are to the effect that in the.block-coal fields of In diana, whore the men have a contract, they will work two days a week until May, when they will join the suspension. Maryland, where nothing was expected, has joined, and on the New and Kanawha rivers there is every indication of a general suspension, Over 40,000 Out. PHILADELPHIA, April 21. — Reports from tho bituminous region indicate that 20,000 men in the Clcarflcld district have joined the strike. Added to this aro O.UOO in the Philiipsburjf district, 4,000 in the Indiana district, 5,000 in the'Jefferson district and 8,000 in the mountain district. Ju Fenunylviinlft. PITTSBURGH, Pa-. April 21.— The great coal strike, so far as this district is concerned :it least, appears to be a success. At noon the 0,000 men in tho river district and the 0,500 in the railroad district laid down their picks and, receiv ing their wages, quietly loft the mines. Dispatches from tho Clearfield district report that the 18,000 men there also struck and that the mines are generally closed. In the Phillipsburg region, east of the mountains, all the mines are idle. The suspension in the Clearfield region will enforce idleness upon 400 trainmen on the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh railroad. In the ConnellMville region the men are still at -work, but the leaders expect to have almost the en tire region of 18,000 men out on Monday. The leaders say there is no longer a doubt as to the attitude of the men regarding the national strike. They are largely m favor of it and nearly three-fourths of them are expected to lay down their tools. Iu Ohio, JACKBON, 0., April 21.-All the mines of Jackson county shut down at 11 a. m. and 4,000 men have joined the great dtrike The miners have worked so little in the last year that many ot them have no eurplus and must suffer if the strike continues for any length of time. POM.BOV, 0., April 21.-The mmers ot the twenty-two planta in this district have joined the general strike. Seven hundred of the 840 employes in Pomeroy Bend signed an agreement Friday night to abide by the terms of the strike. Five operators hare signified their willingness to pay the price demanded. Miner* Oo Out, 8,000 miners of Co;il City, Braceville, Gardner, Carbon Hill of this county and of Clarke City and Hraidwood of the same coal fields laid down their tools in pursuance of a decision made in convention Thursday. Their contracts do not expire until May and June, but they, are striking in reaponse to the manifesto of the Columbus convention, pending further instructions. Situation In Southern IlllnoU. ST. Louiu, April 21 —Advices from the coal mining districts of southern Illinois are of a decidedly quiet nature. The men in the mines at Collinsville, Nilwood, Carlinville and Minonk are Ktill at work. At Minonk lack of work by reason of recent fires in the mines has made the miners too poor to quit. Besides there, as well as at the other towns named, the rate of pay is satisfactory. At Virclen the miners will work until May 1, bfinp hold by a contract. At Uuquoiu a strike has been on since April 1 against a 25 per cent reduction in wanes. At St. John's the miners struck at noon, but only about '200 men are concerned. From lielleville, the center of the largest local district of mines, it is learned that the miners in that vicinity will remain at work. They have no wish to strike, and, besides, are too poorly organised to do so. A Failure in Sonic staten. DEB MOISEB, la., April 21. -The strike ordered by the United Mine Workers of America, has not extended to the Iowa miners, and it is not believed the men in this section will join tho movement. Comparatively few miners belong to the order in this state, and the command to strike, therefore, has no effect on the large majority -here. Toi'EKA, Kan., April 21.— Advices from various parts of Kansas show that tho coal miners in this state are not paying much attention to the strike order issued by the United Mine Workers of America. Only a small number of the 5,000 miners in the state belong to the association, and none of them is anxious to quit work. A great many )-.H.ve '.".•"n idle for months and are not iu .-. p'-ill'Ja to maintain a strike. :'..---'N>. ~, CoL, April Si.— Colorado's erifv, --.-'•• is are not interfered with nltiC.: V- tin. general strike.

WASHINGTON, April 21.— Working people of both sexes from Pennsylvania have reached this city on a special train, their object being to protest against the Wilson tariff bill. A majority of the delegation was from Trenton, Caraden, Manayunk, Bristol and Chester. The textile workera are in the greatest number, but the iron workers, cigarmakers and other industries are largely represented. WABHISOTON, April SI.— More than 1,000 workingmen from Philadelphia a'nd New Jersey marched down Pennsylvania avenue at noon to emphasize their protest against the Wilson tariff bill. Men and women were in line, marching four abreast under the American flag and fluttering banners displaying mottoes opposed to tho Wilson bill. The procession marched to Sletzer- ot's hall by way of Pennsylvania uve- iiuo. Many senators and congressmen walking- up the avenue to the capitol. eyed the parade curiously, and one of them was Senator Quay. No demonstration of any sort was made by the spectators. Gathering in Metzerot's hall tho committee delegated to wait upon various senators made their reports. The committee reported their inability to see Senators Voorhees, Brice, Smith and Murphy. Senator Hill had promised to meet the delegates at noon, and Senator* Cameron and Quay had promised to do all in their power to bring the memorial of the convention to the attention of the senate. The resolutions adopted by the meeting recite the prosperity of labor under tho system of protection, and in the name'of authorized representatives of "millions of American workmen, without distinction of party," demand that no change shall be made in existing tariff laws.

OMAHA, Neb., AprilSl.—For ten hour* Friday 25,000 men. of Omaha, Council .Bluffs and South Omaha stood ready to go to any end to help Kelly's army. Mass meetings were held in all three cities, men marched from one to another, appeals were made to the railway officials, to Ciov. Jackson and to other sources, and finally a tr.-i.in was taken by a coinmittee of railroad men to the carap at YVeston. The Rock Island agent at tt'eston and a man named Chittenden sent section hands outside thn switches to tear up tlu> track. The fact that a train of ten cars with 200 men on board would be ditched was overlooked in the de- , sire to prevent any aid from reaching- Kelly. Declined to Talto Uio Train. i Kelly, after a consultation with hi«, friends, declined to take the train. It would put his men in the light of lawbreakers. Besides, the train was the property of the Union Pacific, and that road being- in the hands of the federal courts Kelly was afraid he would bring the United States authorities down upon him if he took the train. This decision met the approval of ht» men, but he was urged to come by the relief committee. But Kelly would not go. "Let us take your sick men back," was urged, and so six men who were disabled were put aboard. After much handshaking- and cheering, in which the women who went -with the train were given a rousing- reception, the train went back to Council Bluffs and the sick men were taken to the hospitals.

The continued freezing weather also had the effect of cooling the hotheads to a certain extent, as did the announced determination of Gen.

At noon Mayor Bemis issued the following proclamation: "To the citizens of Omaha: Notice has beei served on me as chief executive of the city ol Ouiiha, by the officials of the Chlcaro, Book Inland & Pacific railroad and the Burlln«»n • Missouri River railroad, that their companies, will hold ihe city liable for »11 damage done M their properly by mobs and lawless cHStens.

Kelly expresses the hope that' hi* friends in Omaha and Council Bluffs will strictly observe the law, even though they are laboring under great excitement. The army has only enough provision* for another meal, and thep it relief does not come they will be compelled to go back to the Bluffs. Do is favorably impressed with the suggestion that he secure teams and make the trip overland to Washington, and ho is itlre»dy receiving encouraging responses from the fanning clashes to his appeal for assistance for this purpose. Reports from all the towus near hew are to the effect that the people have contributed plenty of supplies, but have no means of getting the stuff to the army. Kelly thinks he wi!l not accept the proposition of transportation to Kansas City by water except as • last resort, as it will not land hiun any nearer to his desired destination. SAN FBASCISCO.
